We all have heard, read, and seen videos of criminals doing stupid things to get caught. Since I love reading true crime stories, I run across some pretty weird, insane, and unbelieveable stories of criminals and their intent. However, today I read a story that had me bust out laugh because it is so insane ludicrous and unbelieveable! The story was in the Arizona Republic and it was written by Hetty Fauxvert.
The first question I had was why did he put spices on them? Was he a cannibal? How stupid is this criminal? I wish I could interview the criminal and see what was going through his mind!

FRESNO — A burglar who broke into a home just east of Fresno rubbed spices over the body of one of two men as they slept in their rooms and then used an 8-inch sausage to whack the other man in the face and head before he ran out of the house, Fresno County sheriff’s deputies said Saturday.
Lt. Ian Burrimond, describing the crime as one of the strangest he’s ever heard of, said a suspect was found hiding in a nearby field a few minutes later and taken into custody on suspicion of residential robbery.
Deputies, he said, had no problem linking the suspect to the crime.
“It seems the guy ran out of the house wearing only a T-shirt, boxer shorts and socks, leaving behind his wallet with his ID,” Burrimond said.
Arrested was Antonio Vasquez, 22, of Fresno.
Burrimond said deputies were dispatched to the victims’ home shortly after 8 a.m. Saturday regarding a burglary in progress.
The victims, both farmworkers, told deputies they were awakened by a stranger applying spices to one of them and striking the other with a sausage.
Both the spices and the sausage, Burrimond said, reportedly were obtained from the victims’ kitchen.
After the man fled, the victims discovered the home had been ransacked and that some money was taken, Burrimond said.
Burrimond said the money was recovered, but that the piece of sausage used in the attack was discarded by the suspect and eaten by a dog.
“That’s right, the dog ate the weapon,” Burrimond said. “I tell you, this was one weird case.”
